How to Castle in Chess. 

Castling is a defensive move in chess in which the king and the rook are allowed to move at the same time. Castling is a special type of chess move. When castling, you simultaneously move your king, and one of your rooks. The king moves two squares towards a rook, and that rook moves to the square at the other side of the king.and it is the only move aside from the knight's move where a piece can be said to "jump over" another.

The notation for castling, in both the descriptive and the algebraic systems, is 0-0 with the kingside rook and 0-0-0 with the queenside rook; in PGN, O-O and O-O-O are used instead.
